I am a South African lady with an EU passport living in the UK for almost 8 months now. I would like on-going employment and as such will take private work between current bookings to fill gaps.
Recent live-in work has been with several clients in the UK, ranging from palliative, dementia care with incontinence patients.
In South Africa, experience gained was through voluntary work at a frail care centre at a retirement village shortly before leaving for the UK as well as taking care of my mum for 4 years prior to that.
Compassion, understanding and attention to patients' needs are core criteria in this job. I have a genuine interest in caring for people and believe that I am able to provide an excellent service.
My DBS is current, I have an international driver's permit and am able to use my South African driver's license for the first 12 months. I have my own vehicle.
My training is on-going, working towards an NVQ Diploma in Health and Social Care.
If you would like a mature, clean, non-smoking, great cook, please contact me.
